  • William Bradford

    Bradford was an influential member of the Saints, and the Pilgrims - serving as governor of Plymouth on and off for thirty years, leading the colony through times of violence, tragedy and peace.

  • Edward Winslow

    Winslow was a Saint, one of the colony’s most eminent members and acted as Plymouth’s diplomatic representative to the Natives on numerous occasions.

  • John Billington

    Billington was a Stranger whose moral compass was often at odds with many of the Saints. From the beginning, he earned himself a reputation for being a troublemaker.

  • John Carver

    Carver - a man godly and well approved amongst them, was the first governor of Plymouth. Back in England, he played a major role in arranging the Pilgrims’ voyage aboard the Mayflower.

  • Stephen Hopkins

    Hopkins had been to America before, where he had been sentenced to death for an attempted mutiny but was pardoned. His redemption saw him, eleven years on, cast his lot with the Pilgrims.

  • Elizabeth Hopkins

    The wife of Stephen Hopkins, Elizabeth gave birth to the baby born on the voyage across the Atlantic, naming the child Oceanus.

  • Myles Standish

    Nicknamed ‘Captain Shrimp’, Standish was a mercenary soldier hired by the Pilgrims as their military leader. He was bold but arrogant, easily offended and with a vindictive side.

  • Aspinet

    Aspinet, sachem of the Nauset, was understandably ‘ill-affected’ toward European settlers: in 1614, several Nauset were forced into slavery by a European explorer; six years later, the Pilgrims themselves pilfered their grave sites.

  • Massasoit

    With his people decimated by the plague, and at risk of subjugation by neighbouring tribes, Massasoit decided to put his trust in an agreement with the settlers. He was Plymouth’s first ally and present at the first Thanksgiving.

  • Hobbamock

    Hobbamock was a warrior of high standing, a Pnise - a warrior who, it was said, could not be killed. It is believed he formed a strong bond with Myles Standish of Plymouth during his time within the colony.

  • Canonicus

    Canonicus was an increasingly powerful sachem whose tribe, the Narragansett, were unaffected by the plague – which he used to his advantage in Native regional power struggles.

  • Squanto

    Squanto was a Native fluent in English, whose people, the Patuxet, had been wiped out by plague. Though he lived with the Wampanoag and then the Pilgrims as their translator and advisor, he was independent of both.

  • Samoset

    Samoset was a visiting sachem with rudimentary knowledge of English. At the request of Massasoit, the sachem of the Wampanoag, he made first contact with the Pilgrims following their arrival in Plymouth.

  • Wituwamat

    Wituwamat was a feared Massachusetts warrior with a brutal history and a hatred of European settlers.

  • Kaya

    After the Pilgrims received a dubious warning, Hobbamock’s wife was sent to determine whether Massasoit was indeed conspiring against Plymouth. Though here she is named Kaya, her real name was not documented by the Pilgrims.
